I'm on the verge of taking a job in the DC area and wanted to know if there
were any good programs in the area for UX or Interaction Design. Any help or
advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Matthew,

You might want to search the IxDA posts of recent. There's been much
discussion on schools and UX/UI/IxD/Etc. I believe UMD or UBalt has HCI/IxD
type of programs. But I don't know much about these programs. If anyone on
the list is in one of these, I'd be curious to hear their thoughts.

Good luck!
David

UMD has a great program - Schneiderman teaches there - and there are at
least a few people on the list that have gone there.

Matthew and David,
I graduated from the University of Maryland program at College Park as a
Psychology student.
I did research with Ben Shneiderman and was part of the human-computer
interaction lab even though
I was not a computer science student. The lab is composed of people
studying different fields.
I didn't take all of the heavy theory computer science courses.
Instead I took many of the courses related to Cognitive Science and
Statistical analysis.

I hope that gives you some more insights.
Feel free to contact me off-line if you like.
Yours,
John Chin

No personal experience with it, but if cognitive science is what you are
after, George Mason has a very good masters program. I've had people on my
team who went there. I think the focus tends to be more on transportation
and military applications than the web, but the principles apply just as
well. Good usability labs, good eye tracking equipment.

Not design of course, just principles.
